Lecture within the cycle Między figuracją a abstrakcją (Between Figuration and Abstraction) of the Art Transfer Foundation.
The name of Kazimir Malevich is one of the first that comes to mind in connection with non-objective art. Not only was he one of its pioneers, but the suprematism he created is one of the more radical varieties of abstraction. In the lecture we will look at the late period of his work, when not only figurativeness returns, but also the realistic way of painting. Was it only caused by the growing political repressions against the avant-garde? Or maybe it was a part of Malevich’s artistic goals?
